Syllabus

This unit involves clinical placement which will give students the opportunity to build on their previous clinical experience, and demonstrate increasing competency in the generic skills and attributes of physiotherapy professionals as well as the specific clinical skills across the core areas of physiotherapy in managing clients across the lifespan in a range of environments and settings. Students will apply the theory, understanding and skills of the past years study to the clinical practice of physiotherapy. Students will be placed in clinical environments, including but not limited to public, private, acute care, rehabilitation or community health care settings. Students will be moving towards more independent clinical practice, and more independent management of a caseload, while still under close supervision.

Learning Outcomes

After successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

1. Demonstrate consistent professional behaviour, including understanding of patients' rights, good teamwork and commitment to learning;

2. Communicate effectively, verbally and in writing, in the clinical context demonstrating increasingly proficient skills in clinical communication;

3. Perform a comprehensive clinical assessment using appropriate and valid tools with developing independence;

4. Analyse assessment findings to identify the patient's problems in context of current research, and to set treatment goals targeting both primary and secondary problems amenable to physiotherapy;

5. Select and apply effective treatment based on patient goals, including appropriate interventions for secondary problems;

6. Demonstrate well-developed skills in the ability to reflect 'in practice' and 'on practice' and reflect on the learning journey;

7. Identify and minimise risks in the healthcare context; and

8. Think critically and demonstrate well-developed insight into decisions in health care systems from an ethical, resource, and scientific perspective.
